Art Briles was the coach at the same time as a sexual assault scandal at Baylor, which the NCAA handed down a ruling about on Wednesday.

The NCAA found that there was evidence of impermissible benefits and recruiting violations, but proved no evidence of sexual violence-related violations. Perhaps most notable in the report was that Briles, the former coach, did not receive penalties.

Attorney Scott Tompsett released a statement on behalf of Briles after the Public Infractions Report was released. Tompsett described Briles as “completely exonerated” and cleared of all NCAA violations alleged against him.

“The NCAA’s decision today clears the way for Mr. Briles to return to coaching college football,” the statement read.

The Dallas Morning News noted that Briles, who was viewed as toxic after the report, resurfaced as the coach of a pro team in Florence, Italy and then Mount Vernon High School in east Texas. He coached two seasons in Mount Vernon, went 20-6 and resigned after the 2020 season.

Baylor fired Briles in part after it funded an investigation and report by the Philadelphia law firm of Pepper Hamilton, which found numerous problems with the way the university, the athletic department and football program handled sexual assault and violence.
